TROPICAL STORM MATTHEW DISCUSSION NUMBER 2
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL142016
500 PM AST WED SEP 28 2016
Surface observations and aircraft data from earlier this afternoon
indicate that the circulation of Matthew has continued to become
better defined. There has also been an increase in convection
just northeast of the center. The initial intensity remains 50 kt
based on the earlier aircraft data. The next Air Force Reserve
Hurricane Hunter mission into Matthew is scheduled for this evening.
Although the increase in convection suggests that the system may be
trying to establish an inner core, recent microwave and radar data
have not revealed a significant increase in organization or banding
so far. The aircraft also did not report any pressure fall during
its mission. Based on these trends, little change in intensity is
predicted in the short-range, but warm waters and low shear are
expected to allow for steady strengthening while Matthew moves over
the eastern and central Caribbean during the next few days. The
updated NHC intensity forecast is a little below the intensity
consensus through 24 hours, but is close to the consensus and the
statistical models after that time.
Matthew is moving westward to west-northwestward at about 16 kt.
The track forecast reasoning is unchanged from the previous
advisory. The tropical cyclone should move generally westward
during the next 2 to 3 days to the south of a strong deep-layer
ridge over the western Atlantic. The new NHC track forecast has
been nudged northward through 72 hours, to be closer to the new
model consensus. After day 3, Matthew is expected to turn
northwestward as it nears the western portion of the ridge. The
overall track envelope has shifted slightly eastward at days 4 and
5, and the NHC track has been adjusted accordingly. It should
be noted that are still significant differences among the models in
how soon and how sharply Matthew turns northwestward and northward
late in the forecast period. Users are reminded that the average
NHC track errors at days 4 and 5 are on the order of 180 and 240

The APRSfl.net system receives data via the Emergency Managers
Weather Information Network EMWIN
system via satellite on GOES-13 and a Zephyrus WX14 next generation satellite receiver. We also utilize a
Unidata LDM powered
NOAAPORT CBand satellite system as
a source of data with a Novra S300 satellite receiver. We use Weather Message
(WxMesg) as our data processing software to take all this bulk data and
power this page and our e-mail & SMS warning alert system.
If you are interested in a internet based EMWIN warning system of your own,
you'll first need to download a EMWIN software package such as Real EMWIN, Weather
Message, or Interwarn and then connect to our public ByteBlaster server. The high
speed national feed via our downlink (19200bps) is available at emwin.aprsfl.net
on TCP port 2211 (** New Port - was 1000 **).
